We're All Dead: DARPA's Latest Humanoid Robot Learns To Navigate Obstacles

obstacle-navigating-robot.jpg

Seen here begging for a powerful burning laser to the crotch, DARPA's Pet-Proto (with sweet lighting effects) navigates a hole in the ground filled with rubber lizards. But that's not all it can do -- at the beginning of the video it also tackles a VERY high stair. So if you thought stacking boxes or digging holes was going to save you from the robots, it's probably time to reevaluate your survival strategy.

Hit the jump for the brief but worthwhile video. The more you know.

Thanks to residentistEVIL, who agrees nowhere is safe because, unlike humans, robots are willing to ADAPT.
